Alwasy wondered

ive always wondered re the mornng after pill which ive never used. i had to come off pill recently for health risks and my husband who travels will be home soon, i know he will not use condoms i want to know the foll:

If you have sex lets say 3 or 2 times in one night and use the morning after pill the next day does it mean because u had sex more than 1 that the morn after pill will be less effective or does the amount of sperm not play a role in effectiveness? If you take the morning after pill before the sexual encounter is that better or worse or should u take next day after event...

The efficacy of the morning after pill is not changed if you have sex more than once in 24 hours. It should be used after the event, not before. Remember that if you had to stop the Pill for health reasons, the morning after pill has much higher hormone levels and may also be contraindicated.

The morning after is not a form of contraception and should not be used in that way. There are many ways of being carefull, but none are 100% fool proof. You can check your cycle, withdraw, condoms for you and or him (most reliable). Look up other forms instead of the morning after pill. If he travels alot, you probably will not stick to one night if you already have 3 times a night in mind, lol!
